Short Take: Globalstar launches four new satellites

Globalstar successfully launched four new satellites from the Republic of Kazakhstan. The low-Earth orbit satellites joined eight others already in orbit and will eventually provide mobile satellite communications services to consumers worldwide. Globalstar, led by Loral Space & Communications, plans to have 32 "birds" in space when it launches its service, similar to Iridium global phone service, during the third quarter. The company will have 52 operational satellites by 2000.
